Milskil, an operational training services provider and strategic partner to the Royal Australian Air Force, has announced its plans to establish its headquarters and Newcastle operations business hub at the Williamtown Aerospace Centre. The facility is located adjacent to RAAF Base Williamtown.
The Milskil Headquarters, located in Building E within the Williamtown Aerospace Centre, is due to be completed in May 2017, with occupancy scheduled shortly thereafter. The facility will be the corporate headquarters for a business that provides operational training to Defence and the civil emergency sector clients across Australia. It will also house the operational business elements for its Newcastle based services.
Milskil was founded in 2001 as a 100 per cent Australian-owned professional services company that focusses on high-end operational capability. They have been recognised as the only strategic partner of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) for the delivery of Air Combat related training.
Milskil provides simulated and synthetic training and ground school to Australian military aircrew on Classic Hornet, Super Hornet, Growler and Hawk Lead-in-Fighter aircraft. They also provide realistic operational training for Joint Terminal Attack Controllers, Electronic Warfare specialists and Air Battle Managers from the airborne Wedgetail and ground-based Vigilare communities within the RAAF. Milskil has also supported aerial firefighting services in the civil emergency sector.
General Manager, George Bonner, says they are proud to be founded and operating in the Hunter region.
“Milskil is looking forward to establishing its corporate headquarters at the Williamtown Aerospace Centre, which is fast becoming the Hunter’s hub of excellence for aerospace industry support to the Australian Defence Force,” George said.
“The move into the Williamtown Aerospace Centre represents another milestone in Milskil’s growth, while also supporting an increase to the already outstanding services it offers its clients.”
Williamtown Aerospace Centre Director, James Garvey commented they were pleased to welcome Milskil.
“We have worked closely with their team locally over a number of years so it is promising to see this company commit to moving to the estate for their future prosperity,” James said. “The Williamtown Aerospace Centre is proving itself as Australia’s premier defence technology estate with mature and growing firms like Milskil establishing at the precinct.”
